6/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 27 April 2011

We all know that Joe Lally is king. His bass playing for Fugazi was the catalyst that moved Mckaye away from a potentially dodgy career of emo rock into a full on rad career of funk infused post punk-rock. Lally can play that's for sure so why, oh why are his solo albums so painfully average? I don't object to the lack of rocking out, that doesn't concern me, it's the dulling down of previously exciting ideas into a new form of DC punk inspired blues music that bothers me. At best 'Why Should I Get Used To It' sounds like The Warmers minimal moments with a hint of The Make-Up's sleaze punk appeal but, for the most part, it's a weird Fugazi as a blues band feel that doesn't sit that well with me. Maybe a few more listens will change my mind but for now I'm unimpressed. If you believe that The Evens was a suitable way forward for Mckaye then maybe this dumbed down version of previous Dischord glory days will also appeal. New Fugazi album? Yes frickin' please.
